INSPIRE “I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THE POTENTIAL FOR THIS EVENT – I WANT THIS TO BECOME THE SCHOOLS’ EQUIVALENT OF THE LONDON MARATHON” after his school had played host: “What a fantastic event! I stood anonymously marshalling children at the bicycle handover. I lost count of the times I heard the words, ‘That was so much fun!’ or, ‘That was brilliant!’. They won’t forget the day, which means they are more likely to remember the cause.” Sewell agreed: “The children have really understood that they can make a difference, and the combination of sport and charity in a children’s event has been incredibly powerful. Their efforts will help thousands of children in developing countries access health education and life skills, which will transform their lives.” An internationally respected development charity that funds nearly £20m of projects a year around the world, Restless Development’s work is delivered by young people, for young people, giving them the skills and resources to lead change. The triathlons also raised funds for the chosen charities of the host and participating schools. The events were a hit with parents, too. One commented, “What a wonderful event you managed to put together for the children yesterday! The atmosphere was delightful, with lots of support from parents and fellow competitors, all of which combined to make it feel like a real festival of sport.” The series, also sponsored by Knight Frank, Frog Bikes and Warminghams, would not have been possible without the generosity of the four host schools, which donated use of their facilities. The schools needed an on-site swimming pool, extensive grounds and playing fields for transitions zones and running and cycling routes, as well as ample car parking and viewing space for more than 1,000 spectators. With safety paramount, Restless Development partnered with mass event organiser Human Race to ensure the triathlons were organised professionally. The series still relies heavily on volunteers to help run the events, however, so an extra pair of hands is always welcome for future events. Sewell says: “If anyone is interested in getting involved either as a project manager or to volunteer on the day, we would love to hear from them.” Volunteers or schools interested in taking part in or hosting a 2018 Restless Triathlon to help raise £1 million for charity can contact Jim Sewell at SUMMER 17 ★ 43
